Spin, runs up front, key to Warriors’ success

Guyana Amazon Warriors’ captain Shoaib Malik has revealed the secret behind their unprecedented 11-match winning streak in this year’s Caribbean Premier League Twenty20 Cricket Competition.

The former Pakistan Test skipper said the two key factors in the Amazon Warriors’ unbeaten run have been getting one of their main batsmen to make a significant score in each match and their successful spin bowling in the early overs.

“From the first six batters, I think if we look at all the games, one was scoring 50-plus runs. That was one of the keys and the second element was our spinners,” Malik said after they defeated the Barbados Tridents by 30 runs in Sunday’s Qualifier 1 at the National Stadium in Providence to reach their fifth CPL final.

Malik pointed to the role played by veteran South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir and Australian off-spinner Chris Green. (EZS)
